The Welsh Festival is presented by the Welsh Society of Fredericksburg and the James Monroe Museum. This popular street festival honors the Welsh heritage of James Monroe (through his mother Elizabeth Jones). It features live Welsh music, arts & crafts, food, dancing, and activities for children including children’s games, chalk street drawings, bubbles and the always popular face painting. Live music & entertainment will be held on the main stage on Charles Street. You will also be able to participate in “Garden” activities such as storytelling, Welsh language lessons, music & more. These activities will be held in the garden of the James Monroe Museum.
